Proverbs 3:3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

Oh what a day, full of melancholy, and tears. I am sitting to much, and thinking to much, and I need to get out. Unfortunately, Mike isn’t willing to go with me, and so I sit. I really need to get a project going, and I am not sure what to begin with. I am not going to be sitting still much longer! Mike only wants to sit – most likely he gets confused going out and he feels safer at home, but I am feeling very oppressed.
Now, I think I need to begin making plans for a trip – not that I am going anywhere, anytime soon; but just the thought of doing a trip, the planning, and preparing for it, would most likely help me in the long run. I have always enjoyed planning our trips to various places, and even though I will use a travel group, GoAheadTours.com (if you decide to book a tour with them and use my number – I get a small perk #64378906) I can begin the initial process of planning. Mike and I were supposed to have gone on an African Photo Shoot Safari in 2020, but that got cancelled due to the virus. I think I will start planning for that trip. I will begin setting my funds aside for the tour group, and the air flights. I don’t use the tour group for my flights, I like to do my own, and arrive a day or three ahead so I can be acclimated to the new time zone. So the Kenya Wildlife Safari I wanted to do is about $4,200 plus airfare. Since it will be a while before I can consider booking something like this, I’ve decided to go ahead and begin to put the money aside so I have it, in the event I get a chance to travel again.
Right now, I need to shake my doldrums, by some means or other. Mike is doing much better, he just won’t leave the house except for appointments! I, on the other hand, want to go out. I want to go on a photo shoot, or explore a trail, or hike in the park and look for something to take pictures of.
Instead, I am working on paperwork – if I’m not just sitting on my behind! Not good for physical or mental health. I need to make it a goal to try to walk the cul-de-sac at least 2x everyday. That way I’m not far from the house, and I will be outside. Maybe that will help, and maybe I can get Mike to go with me? Since we won’t be doing a long trek. Hmmmm
Now, however, it’s time for lights out.
